Protection & Endpoints
Learn how to manage endpoints.
1 - What is an endpoint?
An endpoint has 3 properties:
- source: to know the origin of the traffic coming on the endpoint
- type: useful to split different parts of your website and/or mobile app
- name: a name of your choice to analyze it through the dashboard
DataDome uses the source and type parameters to apply the right algorithms and detect specific threats.
We define the following values for the endpoint sources:
|Web Browsers||requests coming from all Browsers (mobile or desktop) on websites or APIs|
|Mobile Apps||requests coming from native mobile apps (iOS, Android) on APIs|
|APIs||automated requests coming from machine/scripts on APIs|
We currently propose the following endpoint types:
|General||Default endpoint type. All URLs that are not included in another endpoint configuration.||domain.com/||All|
|Login||Login, account creation or forgot password forms.||domain.com/login|
|Forms||All URLs with forms, could be password forms, troubleshooting forms etc. Except the Account Creation form.||domain.com/contact|
|Account Creation||All URLs related to the account creation on a website/app||domain.com/signup,|
|Cart||All URLs related to the basket in e-commerce website||domain.com/cart,|
|Payment||All URLs related to the payment processing on e-commerce website/app||domain.com/payment,|
|RSS||RSS/Atom feeds fetched by a desktop application or an online aggregator.||domain.com/feed.json|
2 - How to manage endpoints?
Deleted endpoint visualization
If you just deleted an endpoint, you will be still able to see it in the analytics screens of the dashboard since this endpoint matches traffic during the last 30-days. After the 30-days, the corresponding deleted endpoint won't appear anymore on the analytics screens.
By default, one endpoint is pre-set in your account: “Web (default)”.
The endpoint “Web (default)” cannot be reordered or deleted.
Go to Management > Endpoints
A list of endpoints connected to your account is displayed.
The endpoint rules follow the top-down execution method.

3 - How to analyze traffic?
The percentage of traffic is indicated for each endpoint. It includes normal users & bots and is calculated for the last 20 minutes.
You can analyze the endpoint’s traffic by clicking on Actions > View Traffic Details to display the following information:
- An overview of the last 24 hours with the number of requests, URLs and IPs, the top 2 IP owners, and the top 3 UA.
- The last 100 requests.
You can also analyze through the "Explore" view (Read more about the Explore view.
